I don’t think that dad gets that the purpose of an exorcism is to cast the demon out, not invite him in, but here we are.
He made the mistake of going by the Pulaski County Humane Society last night, you know, just to check things out. There was a quartet of rowdy pups that used their superior intellects to bamboozle dad; one in particular must have had formal acting training as he appeared somewhat more sedate than the other three.
I’m believe I’m beginning to see the the formation of a conspiracy; remember Rusty’s Treats, the sweet potato dog treats that Max and Bull were so fond of? Well, Ms Jody had sent a memorial that just happened to be burning a hole in dad’s pocket, an amount that exactly covered the little thespian’s adoption fee, so what was he supposed to do? Willpower has never been one of dad’s strong characteristics.
On the way home, peace and quiet was the rule of the day, with the tiny canine wedged behind dad’s head as he drove to the Casa. What a sweet little dog, right? WRONG! As soon as they got home, an immediate transformation occured; dad didn’t just open the car door…
He unleashed the kraken.
Confucius says “when another woman enters the front door, peace flies out the back”; this is also true of scruffy little wads of rampaging puppy flesh; does this dog EVER just chill out? The closest we have come to a name so far is Taz, as in Tasmanian Devil; another option is Pilot, as he tends to pilot here and pilot there around the faux hardwood floors of the Casa.
All I know is the I, Charlemagne Bravisimo, hereby decree that the bed is a place to sleep, not a porta potty; the little spaz has only been here one night and has already annointed the bedsheets twice. His razor sharp teeth and toenails, coupled with his willingness to use them, have already been employed in the destruction of dad’s wardrobe at the Battle of Dockers Hill, and future skirmishes are no doubt on the horizon.
Mom always had a thing for the bad boys and thinks this one is a cutie as well, but he’s not fooling us; dad and I see right through to the evil that resides in this imp’s devilish little heart.
It’s going to take a bit more than a few sprinkles of Holy Water to calm this beast!
He’s a cutie. Blessings to you… I’m too old to do “puppy” again!
My heart just went poof! She is soooo cute!
I’m so glad you got a new baby. Very respectfully I would like to ask you a question, you seem to have an issue with the neighbor’s dogs, has that been resolved.
It has been “resolved”… not to say that it may arise again in time, but for now, all is good.
Yes, has that been resolved? Or can you put up a fence to keep all the loonies in the bin and safe?
I love you all and want nothing but happiness for your family
They put a fence up. It happened anyway 🙁
This was my question also. Thank you Charlene Stiner for asking. This may be a question a few of us have.
I am wondering how you are going to protect this little baby and keep him from suffering the same fate.
Charlie Bravo – The Motorcycle Rescue Dog Story I hope it’s been resolved.
To be as candidly frank as I can be, I don’t have the capacity to mourn for another doggy that is brutalized by the neighbor monsters. Your “resolved” assurances are not giving me warm fuzzies, Bret. I hope that’s just my worrying nature and not my Spidey senses. Best of luck with the new puppy.
Come on, Charlie! You and Dad should know by now that Mom is always right! She knows what she’s doing! She’ll have this little rapscallion wrapped around her finger in no time! 🙂
Ohhhh he’s cute!!
Looks like a jack Russell terrier mix?
Supposedly a chi/Schnauzer mix; I would say spawn of Satan, based on behaviour
I can see that now that you say that about the mix. Lol on Satan!! Hopefully he? Will settle in!
Kraken works as a name.
We just got a foster scruffy of our own yesterday! She’s up for adoption in Massachusetts, but came all the way from Alabama.
Oh my, these 2 are almost twins! This is Buddy, he will be available for adoption soon in Iowa!!
What a sweet face, congratulations
Congrats to daddy Bret and mommy Jody on your newest addition; I feel much akin to you all ❤️
Now how many total Fur balls make your new Pack?
Back to four, not counting the 2.5 million hummingbirds
Taz! What a perfect name! Welcome to the Casa!
I second Charlene Stiner’s comment. Love that you have opened your home yet again but worry about those hellish neighbor dogs.
What a cutie! He will be such a great addition to your family. Congratulations!
Oh my goodness what a cutie!! Let the good times begin 🙂
Gorgeous! Many, many years ago we adopted a puppy from the Humane Society. We picked the puppy sitting in the cage all quiet and cute. And as soon as we got home all hell broke loose. The running joke in my family was the one in the cage was the display model and we got one out of the back. We loved our Buddy for 12 years before he passed away. I hope you have a long fun life together. Charlie, show them who is boss!
If I were any closer than thousands of miles away I’d be round there like a shot to steal him. Such a cutie! I wish you all many happy years together. And Charlie, as my daughter says, “sharing is caring”.
Great addition to the pack. And I like Taz for the name.
He looks like a Loki to me … Tricked dad into bringing him to the casa under the guise that he was mild mannered when he wasn’t . 🙂
I vote for taz also
He’s sooooo cuuuuuuttteee!!!!
Welcome sweet one! You have just discovered heaven.
I think Kraken is an excellent name for him, and when he’s being good you can call him Ken!
I don’t think Ken will ever be applicable
Taz would perfect! Tassie Devils are just plain crazy, another one of our Oz peculiarities!!
Oh, I couldn’t resist either!
How about Darth?!
Lmao… great story
lol looks to be part Jack Russell Terror! I have one and they can be quite the handful but IMHO one of the best breeds!
Good morning Charlie!! The mornings of calm domain have temporarily come to an end! It’s just because the little “spaz” (I kinda like that name which you mention) has been given the life many are denied!! Show him the ropes and soon you’ll have a new best friend!!!
I expected nothing less…just surprised it took so many hours before it happened!! Welcome Taz…to the Casa…of LOVE…not Whackos!!! xx
Cutie! Looks like a part Jack Russell terrier. They are pretty hyper!
I cannot feel sorry for Dad. That’s a terrier mix if I ever saw one, and we know what those things are made of.
Welcome to the good life at the Casa, Taz.
What a precious little punkin….
I’m so happy the Mad Max funds went to such a great cause! Sorry, CB, that you’ll be subjected to such painful puppy antics for a while, but I’ll bet you’ll be good friends in no time! Welcome to the Casa crazy little whirler of dervish!!
Love this and love the name Taz! Charlie will tame the little “devil”. 🙂
Precious Fur baby
He is adorable. Congrats.
Oh My Charlie, ye better get to work. I see a lot of Jack Russell here, full of life and loves a good time. No rest for awhile.
Aww. Welcome to the world of being owned by a Jack Russell. Your life will never be the same again! I know.
One owns me. This one has some Jack in him. I can tell from his head and face markings.
Adorable!!!!! I wish my spoiled rotten Sophie (deer Chihuahua) would allow another dog in to our Casa. We got quite a crew of outside dwellers but NO ONE of canine origin is allowed inside, per Sophie!!!! At 2 lbs she is tiny but has a huge attitude!!! Someday I am going to be in your area and hope to meet your crew!!!
Yes! I have been owned by 2 of them. Lol. They DO make the world colorful. Would not change one thing.
Love it! This baby looks like a Jack Russell pup! I have one and they are the most energetic things you’ll ever find. But very smart and good dogs!!
Two beautiful women!
Uh, you do realize that this is Charlie you’re talking about, right?
Raylene, this looks like kin to the little one you got. You should follow this page if you don’t already.
What a cutie! Evil though he may be 😉
What a bunch of softies residing in the casa de wackos. ! I think Satan is a good name. Or Terror and you can call her Terri.
YAY!!!! What a cutie he is!! What an incredibly nice gift to receive in memory of your loved lost ones <3
Ha ha…I LOVE this!!!!
A T-Rex in attitude only. LOL
I like the name Kraken too! Welcome home sweet puppy! Hang in there Charlie! Before you know it the two of you will be best buddies! 😉
He’ll settle down in a year or two! Our Chief used to tell us that when we left, Annie would sprout imp wings from her back and torture him; the wings disappeared as soon as the key went into the front door lock. She eventually did sorta kinda turn into a well-behaved young lady…sorta.
That pup hit the jackpot!
Oh but he’s so cute!!!
holy terror have a blast
Welcome to babyhood again!! Charlie will get her in order!! Congrats❤️
I have a 12.5 year old Jack Russell…. they don’t change.
Oh boy… looks like there’s some Jack Russell in there, lol… personality, spunk and destruction!… And tons of loyalty and love.
He is adorable
Yay!!! Lucifer has joined the Casa. What a lucky, blessed lil guy. Congrats to you all
I see Miss Ellie has a watchful eye on the new addition as well.
Ah Charlie you got a new baby sister. Just fence in the yard to keep those next door neighbors at their own place.
Jack’s love to get away, our neighbor has one and it’s always out of the yard.
Have fun and be a great big sibling…
As the mummy of a pair of Jack Russells (one of whome is a scruffy jack too!) all I can say is good luck! These dervish little gobs on legs are madness personified.. lol .. Have fun Casa inmates.. the best is yet too come! 😉 xx
Congrats!! So cute!
call him zoom haha
Yay!!!!! Hang tough Charlie, it does get better!! And for you baby puppy dog, go get em!!
It’s amazing how “innocent” those little buggers look. Enjoy… and keep anything worthwhile out of reach!
omg, he is so cute!
Awww look at that adorable little face!! So cute! Charlie as the big sis you have to look after the little one!
Welcome to the family Kraken x
such a cutie pie
So cute. No worries, he will conform to the rules of the Casa. Time will tell
Congrats on the new addition….walk tall Charlie girl…you are the star of the page….
Welcome to your new home, little one! You’re a lucky puppy!
He sure looks cute!
Adorable. Definitely got some Jack Russell blood. I like Kraken too!!!
What a cutie!
Hate potty training. Nothing worse than warm moist sheet but hey i think you got a little lover you can figure it out i also like Kraken.
Congrats – and who can get upset at that face, and those floppy ears – precious!!!!!
My JRT is nearly 15. He is deaf, nearly blind and can hardly walk from arthritis but still digs to China and drags in the latest kill. Please be patient and know you will never encounter a more intelligent and loyal little devil. Decide now to live with most of his misbehavior. Pick your battles very carefully because you want to win the very most important ones….you will NOT win them all so don’t even try or you’ll be crazy and he will be abused or his joy and exuberance destroyed. You chose him so accept his breed’s characteristics. Love him and let the other stuff go…take a deep breath and give him a hug. Best wishes!
Oh he is cuuuute! Puppies are like having a newborn, a potty training toddler, and a teenager all in one. I rescued two poor mange ridden babies and kept them for a couple of weeks until a rescue could take them. They were cute but they were something!
Oh I believe he definitely got some terrier in him!
Awww, what a cutie, congratulations Mom, dad & Charlie on your new addition to the Casa, wonderful fun times ahead especially for Charlie girl, love the name Taz !!
looks half Jack Russe
Yes one of mine is called Taz for that reason
Lol. I got one too. A sweet innocent little charmer. Lol. Right!
Love reading this
We have one of those…. a ball of energy… keeping our other dog on his toes…he is 23 weeks old….my daughter named him Damian….I was thinking the Omen but she is talking about the 5th Robin, Batman’s son
What a cute little fellow…. Looks so innocent. But we all know, puppies will be puppies. LOL
I couldn’t imaging life with out him…
He is an adorable ball of fire!
Kraken is a great name! He is cute as the devil, so I suppose he might as well behave like him too.
